Induction of Pluripotent Stem Cells from Mouse Embryonic and Adult Fibroblast Cultures by Defined Factors

Differentiated cells can be reprogrammed to an embryonic-like state by transfer of nuclear contents into oocytes or by fusion with embryonic stem (ES) cells. Little is known about factors that induce this reprogramming. Here, we demonstrate induction of pluripotent stem cells from mouse embryonic or adult fibroblasts by introducing four factors, Oct3/4, Sox2, c-Myc, and Klf4, under ES cell culture conditions. Unexpectedly, Nanog was dispensable. These cells, which we designated iPS (induced pluripotent stem) cells, exhibit the morphology and growth properties of ES cells and express ES cell marker genes. Subcutaneous transplantation of iPS cells into nude mice resulted in tumors containing a variety of tissues from all three germ layers. Following injection into blastocysts, iPS cells contributed to mouse embryonic development. These data demonstrate that pluripotent stem cells can be directly generated from fibroblast cultures by the addition of only a few defined factors.

Theory of mind - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Theory of mind (often abbreviated ToM) is the ability to attribute mental states—beliefs, intents, desires, pretending, knowledge, etc.—to oneself and others and to understand that others have beliefs, desires, intentions, and perspectives that are different from one's own.[1] Deficits can occur in people with autism spectrum disorders, schizophrenia, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder,[2] as well as alcoholics who have suffered brain damage due to alcohol's neurotoxicity.[3] Although philosophical approaches to this exist, the theory of mind as such is distinct from the philosophy of mind.

Scotland’s chief medical officer wants the profession to take a critical look at modern practice and abandon the outdated “doctor knows best” culture by better supporting patients in taking informed decisions about their own treatment.

Albert Lasker - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Albert Davis Lasker (May 1, 1880 – May 30, 1952) was an American businessman who is often considered to be the founder of modern advertising. He was born in Freiburg, Germany when his American parents Morris and Nettie (Heidenheimer) Davis Lasker were visiting their ancestral homeland. He was raised in Galveston, Texas, where his father was the president of several banks.[1] In Chicago, he became a partner in the advertising firm of Lord & Thomas, later purchasing the firm. He had many successful ad campaigns and made new use of radio for them, changing popular culture and appealing to consumers' psychology. He was elected to the American National Business Hall of Fame.

Pay for Performance: Is it Good for Public Administration?

Being the inaugural column for PA TIMES online, I want to take the opportunity to briefly describe my rationale for undertaking this endeavor. My observations and perspectives stem from experience as a public administrator, with occasional forays into academia, and a belief that practitioners and scholars of public administration tend to talk past each other—if they talk at all. This is unfortunate since the field is beset with challenges and a dose of reality in terms of rigorous analysis can lead to optimal decision-making. Today’s column will look at one area of public sector human resource management — pay for performance — where academic research points to caution while policymakers ignore the advice. Perhaps we can spark a robust discussion between academics and practitioners and advance the art and science of public administration.

Barnum effect - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Barnum effect, also called the Forer effect, is the observation that individuals will give high accuracy ratings to descriptions of their personality that supposedly are tailored specifically for them, but are in fact vague and general enough to apply to a wide range of people. This effect can provide a partial explanation for the widespread acceptance of some beliefs and practices, such as astrology, fortune telling, graphology, aura reading and some types of personality tests.

Hospital Safety Culture Key to Improving Surgical Results

The 'safety culture' of a hospital may be just as important in delivering high-quality surgical patient care as more technical issues like surgeon skill and operating room equipment, according to a new study.
